On Monday 12th February we welcomed our Erasmus partners Erik Kok and Rudi Bastiaans from The AKI ArtEZ Institute of the arts, Enschede Netherlands. Over the course of 5 days they worked with Research staff Magda Stawarska-Beavan, Tracy Hill and Professor David Binns and supported by technical staff Jane Bennett, Joanne Garret, Rick Healey and Francis Neale to create the cross-disciplinary project ‘Ceramic Frankenstein’

15 students from across UCLan including students from Games Design, Illustration, Ceramics, Fine Art and Textiles worked together sharing knowledge and skills in a high energy, creative collaborative environment.  The purpose of the project was to offer undergraduate and post graduate students the opportunity to work together to transfer specialist skills into new areas of practice.  The resulting installations are a collaboration of both ideas and physical skills developed using the specialist print, photography and ceramics studios at UCLan to explore the full possibilities of combining image, surface and form.
